Miami Hurricanes freshman safety Avantae Williams was suspended and eventually dismissed by the football team following an arrest for aggravated battery of a pregnant person.
The 20-year-old is accused of repeatedly throwing his pregnant ex-girlfriend to the ground during an argument. He is facing three counts of aggravated battery of a pregnant person and is being held on $10,000 bond.
According to a Miami-Dade Police Department incident report, the woman, Williams' ex-girlfriend, is 31 weeks pregnant, and Williams was aware of the pregnancy. They have been living together for four months.
The woman said she and Williams were arguing about his involvement with another woman when Williams said, "When I return from practice, you need to be gone."
She was in her bedroom packing her things to leave when Williams returned from practice, the woman said. According to the report, Williams was angry that she was still in the residence, grabbed her by her hair and threw her onto the bed, grabbed her again and threw her to the ground, and then picked her up and threw her to the ground outside the residence, where she hit her head, before contacting a neighbor and calling 911.
The woman was taken to a hospital for evaluation. The report states she suffered multiple bruises to her arms and a minor bruise to her neck.
Miami has officially dismissed safety Avantae Williams from the team after the former four-star recruit was arrested and charged with battery against a pregnant woman.
